FJ's Inquiry and Observation

Ghost Shrimp Breeding Update!

Rate this Entry
Okay, the night before last, we took our mama shrimp out of the breeding tank. All of the eggs were gone and she had shed her skin. There was nothing on her swimmerets, so (according to other info) we moved her back home.

The babies are still too small to see with the naked eye, but we were told that they would be that way until about a week, then we would start to see them.

We got a powder-like fish food geared toward tiny babies (Hikari First Bites) and well... They are too small to see yet, but the dust is gone. Our hornwort sank yesterday after getting a stronger air pump and trying to calibrate it properly. The pressure pushed it down and it hasn't risen back up yet, but it still looks good. We are reluctant to try moving it because we could disturb the babies hiding in it...

Back to mama shrimp... no more than 20 minutes after she was reintroduced to the 20 gal, our guy shrimp decided that she had rested enough and went after her again. Did you know that they look like they're doing a weird type of wrestling/martial arts? It looked almost Matrix worthy...

In order to keep them from reproducing so quickly (one batch per month!) should we just separate them? Or is there a type of salt peter for shrimp?
